Wadjda’s parents won’t buy her a bicycle, so she determines to raise the money herself. And with her mother distracted by her husband’s plans for a second wife, she has a chance. The first ever feature from Saudi Arabia, this inspiring and gently subversive film won the Satyajit Ray Foundation Award for 2013.
